34. D'Albert, Eugen. Autograph letter signed ("Eugen D'Albert"), in German, 10 pages (7 x 5.37 in.; 178 x 137 mm.), Pegli, 7 January 1894, to the Austrian music critic, Ludwig Karpath: with envelope. The German composer and pianist writes in part: ... My marriage was an unhappy one because my wife had no understanding for anything purely human. She was by virtue of her upbringing and nature a rather unmodern woman who got her wisdom from the "Garden Arbor."...it wasn't until I devoted myself exclusively to composing that the schism of our views became greater, the relationship more unbearable. I have been friends with Frau Felde for some time...But my wife got jealous, and in the most petty way, so that she insulted and maligned Frau Felde and labeled me her defender. By this we were brought closer to each other, and we fell in love. The goal and the longing of Frau Felde had all her life been to call a child her own. When she felt that she was going to be a mother, she was indescribably happy... My wife was to be drawn into the secret. But our plan failed at the petty, vengeful behavior of my wife... The result was the divorce, which was obtained on mutual understanding (without one of the parties being found at fault) in Switzerland. So I bought my freedom... A lengthy and acutely poignant letter written during a particularly turbulent time in D'Albert's life. $600 - $800
